l'espace de notre rêve s'étend autour de la lune
la mélancholie omniprésente qui consume nos intestins
Drinking melancholia from a glass
Then the whole bottle of wine
While looking at Mars
Who was lurking behind the sun
Reducing us to the irrelevance
We were in our fixed shapes
[Translated from Gert Vanlerberghe's Melancholia]
"Espace de notre rêve" was painted very fast; within one day of collaging, painting, and finishing up, the painting was created, but it soon took over many hearts, including mine. It has since long taken a place in my living room. The subject of the painting is an abstraction of dreams, and how shapes reside within our mind.
"Melancholia" took some more time, and lived through a few transformations. Melancholia refers to how our thoughts can consume us at times, how they take away our face, our being, our dignity. The painting is currently covered by a layer of resin.
